New Reformation-era Acquisitions
BYU’s Renaissance and Reformation Collection contains over 100 Martin Luther pamphlets in German and Latin, comprising letters, religious and political tracts, and sermons. The most recent additions to this collection are:
- Luther’s “Wider den falsch genantten geystlichen stand des Bapst und der Bischoffen (Against the So-Called Spiritual Estate of the Pope and the Bishops),” a 1522 pamphlet which denounces the indulgence trade and clerical celibacy; and
- “Vermanung an die geystlichen versamlet uff dem Richstag zu Augsburg, MDXXX (Exhortation to All Clergy Assembled at Augsburg for the Imperial Diet of 1530).”
Other recent acquisitions include works by Ulrich von Hutten, Huldrich Zwingli, and Martin Bucer. All are available for research and can be accessed in the Special Collections reading room.
